The Lake Alfred Lions Club has been serving our community for 70 years.
Our members are citizens of Lake Alfred and surrounding communities. We come together to help by providing vision care for the children and adults that are unable to afford it. We reach out to our local schools and try to help them with their needs. We now have a Cub Scout Troop meeting in our Clubhouse. This is another way to serve the needs of this community.
We are family. Lake Alfred and our Lions Club are members of this family.
April 2016 Was another Hydroplane Race at Lake Alfred with the Lions Club hosting the event. We were proud to welcome the US Title Series. It was 3 days of hot weather, fast boats, and lots of work. When it was over, there was a profit, but not as much as we had hoped to get for children's eyesight programs. Time will tell if it comes back, but we must be more involved and bring the community in more that the last time.
We still have bingo every Saturday night and we have plans for Marathon Bingo on Sept 24th.& Novembeer 5th. There will be additional Marathon games after the first of the year. Senior Bingo for the nursing homes will held Oct 17th at Lake Alfred Clubhouse.
